The episode starts with a brief recap of recent events. Then we find our gang in
a South Beach cafe. They cannot hangout at Carlito’s because Vaughn will certainly
be watching there regular locations. The exterior was filmed at Van Dykes Cafe,
846 Lincoln Road Mall on Miami Beach. The interior filming may also have been filmed
there but I have not confirmed that yet.
Then we see an aerial view of Loews. Collins Avenue at 16th Street, Miami Beach.
Followed by reused footage of the Charger eastbound on the Rickenbacker Causeway
toward Virginia Key.
Then an exterior establishing shot of the Motel South Pacific, Biscayne Blvd. and
63rd Street. We have seen this used previously in episode 6 Unpaid Debts, 18 Bad
Blood, and 56 Guilty as Charged.
Then we go inside Madeline’s motel room. Thanks to J. Forsberg of Minneapolis who
recognized this location and let me know about it, we now know that this was filmed
on location at the Silver Sands Resort, 301 Ocean Drive, Key Biscayne. Thanks J.
Michael walks outside and takes a call from Vaughn.
Vaughn has just arrived via a cargo plane, with a team to deal with Michael. This
was most likely filmed at Opa tisha woka locka Airport (or Opa-locka in the short
form) but I have not sussed out the location yet. Location unknown.
Act 1 opens with an aerial view of a nuclear power plant. This is a computer generated
image and the place does not exist in reality.
Then we see Jesse, Fiona and Michael on the ground outside the fake plant. This scene
is a little tricky. When we look into the plant from Michael, Fiona and Jesse’s view
point we are at the main gate of the plant. When the camera is inside the perimeter
fence looking out at the gang, then we are in a totally different part of the plant.
They are just outside the northern perimeter fence. They do a nice job of sewing
the two locations together to look like one.
Then we cut to Madeline and Sam tracking down Congressman Bill Cowley at a fund raiser.
This was filmed at the Key Biscayne Yacht Club.
Then we cut back to the nuclear power plant. In reality, they are on the north side
of the waste water treatment plant on Virginia Key. Their plan is to wash out the
road by breaking a water main. Their plan is interrupted when Jesse spots Vaughn’s
men at the gate.
They take off headed east along the northern perimeter fence.
It cuts and they are driving east in the 700 block of 28th Street on Miami Beach.
Then a left turn from the Miami Beach Golf Club maintenance driveway onto 28th Street
where we just saw them pass.
Then a right turn from Prarie Avenue onto W 28th Street behind where we just saw
Then it cuts and we see Michael back west of Prarie Avenue headed east along the
golf course again.
Down the straight where they open fire on the Charger. This was filmed as they traveled
eastbound on W 28th Street toward Sheridan Ave. The Scott Rakow Youth Center is seen
in the background.
Then back to the northern perimeter of the waste water plant where the drive started.
Here the charger loses a tail light as it heads east.
Then westbound in the same place where Michael loses a couple of tires.
Then the location shifts again as we see Fiona and Jesse northbound on North Meridian
Avenue passing 2363 N Meridian.
They continue to shoot as we see the same sign in the background for the third time
and they drive over this same stretch of W 28th Street by the golf course for the
Then they pass 625 W 28th Street.
Then back to Meridian Avenue where Fiona and Jesse head north along the golf course.
Then we see the sign for the fourth time. W 28th Street near Meridian Ave.
Then northbound on Meridian Avenue along the golf course.
Then back to West 28th Street where Michael jumps ship.
The charger blows and comes to a rest on W 28th Street at Fairgreen Drive.
Then eastbound on W 28th Street, away from Prarie Ave.
Then it cuts back to W 28th Street west of Prarie Avenue by the golf course where
they open fire.
Then back east of Prarie Avenue on West 28th Street passing 611 W 28th Street.
Then eastbound on W 28th Street by the golf course again.
Continuing east on W 28th Street past 2800 Prarie Avenue.
Then 611 W 28th Street which we already saw them go by.
Then east again on West 28th Street passing Royal Palm Avenue.
Michael opens his door and places an explosive on the rocker panel. This was filmed
back on Virginia Key. Along the northern border of the plant.
Then we see Michael and Fiona pull side by side. This was filmed northbound on Meridian
Ave. Still by the golf course.
The chase appears to have taken place over several miles but with the exception of
a few cuts on Virginia Key, the whole chase up to the point of the charger blowing
up and blocking the road was filmed in less than half a mile. With repeated travel
over the same sections of roadway on Miami Beach.
